Lonzo Ball showed up at Los Angeles Lakers shootaround Friday morning with a new look. The rookie point guard got a haircut and was seen burying several 3-pointers at the end of shootaround before Friday's game against the Phoenix Suns. "Just time to restart," Ball said of his haircut. "Did it at UCLA, cut my hair, grew it back out. About that time. Had it for a while." Asked if the new buzz has anything to do with trying to get a clean start after struggling recently on the court, Ball shook his head. "Nah, it's just a haircut, man," Ball said. Lonzo Ball has a new look. The No. 2 overall pick has struggled with his shot this season and has not played in the past two fourth quarters -- a win over Phoenix and a loss to Philadelphia -- with coach Luke Walton sticking with the strong play of Jordan Clarkson. Ball is averaging 9.0 points, 6.9 assists, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game but is shooting 30.3 percent overall and 23 percent from behind the arc.
